THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!

Postby Terramax » Wed Jan 07, 2015 4:11 pm

Heya Rekka. It's been a while since I've been on these forums. Hope things with you are ok. Happy new year!

Basically, I do log onto your Drakengard main site and read whatever news you include on there, but wordpress screwed up on me AGES ago, and I can't find a way to log in or make a new account to actually make a comment (and show my continuous support)

Therefore, I'm just throwing this post / thread out there to say a big THANK YOU for all the effort you've put into this site since its inception, and it all really is appreciated.

I thought I'd do this especially as it seems like some numpties out there are being really picky with your translations.

I wish I could have contributed to the anniversary, but I've no talent, so I've been looking from the sidelines.

...man, I really need to play through DOD3 again, once I've finished playing through Way of the Samurai 4 and uploading all my Shinobido 2 videos onto youtube.

So, yeah, here's to you Rekka!

Really? There should be a login link on the right hand side of the page.

If you're having a problem with it, please let me know because you may not be the only one. There hasn't been anyone commenting there since my latest post, so I didn't know if something is wrong with the system or just that people aren't interested in making comments. xD

But thanks a lot for your kind comments. It's really nice to hear that at least some of the core DOD fanbase appreciates what I do. :cat-happy2:

Oh, it's nothing to do with your site. I've had problems with wordpress even before coming here. Wordpress has just given me hassle over the years.

I don't think the Dod Fanbase to be such an ungrateful lot, simply the few unthankful troublemakers are always louder and stand out more than the many but quiet thankful ones.
Hey don't become depressed because of some unsavory ones ! (plus, i would hate to lose my main Dod Fresh material supplier, and our spokesman with Taro)

Also, perhaps you still have to make your proof in front of the Dod core fanbase... After all everyone who was introduced to the Dod series By Drag-on-dragoon 2, and still like the game afterward is highly suspicious, if not tantamount to treason.
(Ah, needless to comment that one, it's just innocent teasing :p :anvil: )

I just drop by to say thanks for your (mostly) full-assed and correct translations (among other small things), それじゃあ、本当に、本当に、ありがうとございました。

haha You saw that comment, didn't you? I had to laugh. I know I'm not perfect, but I doubt I was completely deserving such remarks. Of course, I welcome constructive criticism because I think we all can learn from each other. If he had backed up his remarks at least with a single reference, maybe the comments could have been validated. Other wise, it just comes off as a jealous nobody who's trying to be tough hiding behind the mask of anonymity. :doh:

But thanks, anyway! I'm glad some people can enjoy the stuff that I work on. :cutehug:

Well honestly that comment was so absurd i laughed loudly reading it too, i'm thankful for that.
Reversing that comment for the sake of humour in my thanks, migth have been a bit improper.
Truth be told, there's but a few text that i'v read both in japanese and in your translation of it and i never cared to check it's accuracy, so i can't really say if it's correct or not (not like i'm able to anyway).
But stating the obvious, i had better to say that , would it be terrible, we would still have no "right" to critizise your translation that way, as it's made for free and nobody is forced to read it.

I seriously doubt a master at translation, owning the raw material would bother to read and check your translation, isn't that all some backlash of the watermarks controversy ? (or a canny student dissatisfied with his english test result ? :lol: )

Hi Rekka,

Just passing by to express my thanks again for your work and the good mood you show in your post!
Seriously i don't understand why you bother yourself with people asking for faster releases.

A few days ago I came upon a fan remix of the song of the ancients from NieR, put me in a great mood, give it a try:
